Oregano plants are hearty herbs that grow well in dry climates. They do well even when they have been neglected by their owner. The plant typically grows from 5-12 inches tall and prefers rocky soil with good drainage. The leaves of the plant can be harvested at any point for use in cooking or medicines, but they are most flavorful when harvested young and fresh from the stem of a live plant!
How to germinate
The best way to germinate the seed is to soak it in water for 24 hours before planting it in a pot filled with moist soil. Place the pot in a shady location for at least 2 weeks before moving to a sunnier spot. Keep the soil moist and well-drained - do not let it dry out.
It is important that you plant your oregano seeds directly into pots or into garden beds with moist soil, not just on top of the ground.
